QuorumLabs®, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery and continuity for small- to mid-sized businesses, today announced the addition of a new vice president of engineering to its executive staff. Steve Bagby, a product development veteran with nearly 30 years of technical leadership under his belt, will facilitate the rapid growth and evolution of QuorumLabs’ backup, recovery and continuity solutions.
“I was initially drawn to QuorumLabs due to the innovative and robust disaster recovery solutions, which reflect a deep dedication to the small- to mid-sized business customer base,” said Bagby. “But it was QuorumLabs’ pioneering role in the industry and the strategic vision for the future that truly impressed me. I’m excited to be part of QuorumLabs’ upcoming growth and ongoing product development.”
Bagby brings decades of experience as leader in the engineering and product departments of companies small and large, most recently as a co-founder and CTO of SimpliVity, a stealth-mode cloud infrastructure startup. Prior to that, Bagby held executive engineering positions at a number of backup, virtualization and storage companies, including SEPATON, FalconStor Software, Neartek (now EMC), Bull and Advanced Computer Technologies. He also consulted for the CEO of Diligent Technologies during the company’s acquisition by IBM, managing the engineering and product management teams through the transition. His areas of expertise include strategic planning, securing financing, managing innovations from inception to completion, and bringing new products to market.
“Steve’s longstanding experience in advancing product delivery through rapid growth and change is a perfect fit for QuorumLabs,” said Larry Lang, CEO of QuorumLabs. “Steve is a valuable addition to our executive team, and he couldn’t be joining us at a better time. Demand for our solutions continues to increase, especially for our Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery Solution, which combines onsite high availability of key applications and data with instant recovery from the cloud, with the single click of a button. Steve will enable us to continue building out new and exceptional offerings, while continuing to help us perfect existing systems like our Hybrid Cloud Solution.”
